Big box of fleeces

I received a rather large box full of fleeces this afternoon ready for the Border Union Show at the weekend up at Kelso.  It actually feels real now the  fleeces are arriving; it should be a good show.

Geena is still hanging on to her cria, she's not actually due until next week but she is looking like she wont be too much longer.  Mum is hoping that she will have it whilst she's here over the next few days.

The cria are all continuing to grow up and gain weight nicely, its amazing how quickly they grow.  Emery, Kate's daughter is by far the biggest despite being the fourth one born.  I am slightly concerned about Spadicious though, I think he is a little constipated again.  He was like it a few weeks ago but I managed to sort him out and he was going ok so I am keeping a very close eye on him.

Oh my word it's already 11.30pm and I've not done any spinning yet and I have an order for some grey gloves which mum can't knit until I've spun the yarn.  Carol is also complaining she has almost run out of yarn!  I need more hours in the day.

Magellan was constipated a few weeks ago. Where the usual soapy water enema failed; a Fleet enema worked a treat.
